With Kristen Stewart of Kristen Stewart School of Make-up.
This Spring look out for glossy lips, perfect shiny or bronzed skin, the ‘no make-up’ look, either soft pastels or some seriously smoky eyes, striking red lips or the brilliance of some other off-the-hook colour, and to finish it off, fine liner.
For the perfect skin, with a very light looking see-through base, I recommend M.A.C Face and Body Foundation. This is a light foundation that has a buildable coverage and a flawless, natural satin-shine finish. We are falling back in love with eye products! So when prepping your face with amazing moisturisers and primers, do not forget to do this to your eyes, as this will help keep your eye make-up looking fresh and vibrant all day long.
My absolute favourite mascara M.A.C Haute & Naughty Lash is a two-in-one mascara that lets you have either a very natural-looking lash or...
Cityscape catches up with Brigit Blair on the 20th anniversary of Linden Leaves.
How did you get into the natural beauty business?
I began in a very small way, focussed on natural ingredients that could be used daily by 2 of my children who had the daily challenge of dealing with severely itchy, raw, inflamed, infected and sensitive skin.
How would you describe the past 20 years with Linden Leaves?
It has pretty much been my life and my passion, a time filled with gaining knowledge and insight and building a team of talented and dedicated people around me with some success.
What are the requirements of your ingredients?

Cityscape winds back the clock and gets pretty from the inside with Dr Libby ahead of her national tour.How did you become a nutritional biochemist? I went to university for 14 years, which I know makes me sound a bit thick, but I loved learning, still do. My first degree was a Bachelor of Health Sciences (nutrition and dietetics) which I graduated with honours. I then went on and did a PhD in biochemistry, during which time I also started my own private practice seeing clients as well as doing some university lecturing.When did you discover that beauty comes from the inside out? I can’t recall a time of ever seeing it as an outside job. My grandmother was woman ahead of her time. She died in her sleep at 96, had no illnesses, was on no medication, and had very few creases on her face. I remember when I was...
